Polish Con or Bust!

So a few a few weeks ago I drove down to Chicago with some newly made friends to hit up Polish Con. If you aren't familiar with Polish Con this is an event featuring Independent Nail Polish Makers.  So far they are having this event in the Chicago area every Fall and then other cities in the Spring. They recently named New York for Spring 2017. Since Chicago is a little more than an hour drive for me Chicago is always doable. In  fact the gals I drove down with and I are already talking about road tripping again next year!

I've been really busy at work as well as helping out my mom after gall  bladder surgery so I really haven't stamped my nails much but I have been wearing some of the really exceptional polishes I got at the Con! I thought I would share of a few of the ones I bought as well as the polishes from the VIP bag

First up is the mani I wore to the Con itself.  It matched the top I was wearing that day


There was really only 1 must have polish for me before I left for the event and that was Lollipop  Posse's Give The Lady What She Wants.  OMG when I saw pictures of this polish I fell instantly in love with it and it did not disappoint!

It is a deep vampy bordeaux crelly type polish with a freaking teal shimmer!!! Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!!

Once I got to the Con there were other polishes that hadn't been on my radar I had to snag.  This next one is one of them.  Seriously I died when I picked up this polish and held it in my hands.  It did not hurt at all it was from Darling Diva as I love and adore Carrie and she never disappoints.  

This is Corvis and honestly you can't even describe it it's so dang gorgeous!  It's a black jelly base filled with green, blue, pink ultra chrome flakies as well as holo micro glitter.  Seriously I died when I put this on!!
This polish to me is 100% the Universe in a bottle!

Carrie just loves aliens so I decided to put a little image that reminded me of something out of Alien on a couple of accent nails!
Soooooo cool!!!!

Here's another one I didn't know I needed until I was standing at the table looking at it.  This is Alter Ego's Vegas Showgirl and this thing is FULL OF BLING!  Oh my goodness it is SO stunning and actually completely different than all of the others I bought.  I tended to go for the dark vampy  Fall colors but this is completely the opposite
 Best pics I got of this baby were sitting in the living  room by the window as the sun was shining in!
This one is such a stunner!

Out of the bunch of purchases I  bought at Polish Con this CBL exclusive is definitely one of my faves.  I did see a picture of this before the event and knew I wanted it and I was not disappointed in this beauty at all!  

This is just a really lovely color and perfect for Fall and Winter!
And this baby  has a slight shift to gold to her! Yep in certain light you get a warmer colder burgundy
I love it and why I say it's perfect for fall.  In fact I did some Fall leaves stamping over it!
Our leaves aren't changing too much here in Southeastern Wisconsin just yet but I suspect that will change starting this week

I'm working today to get some more swatching done of my Polish Con purchases as well as some polishes from the VIP bag.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
